Very Nice to meet you. My name is LaVerne and I'm the founder of the Z & Joxa Company. I'm originally from Saskatchewan, Canada (Hence the site colors!).
The idea to start an online clothing + accessories company started a few years ago, but it took a turn of events in my life to decide to spearhead the venture and make the official jump into entrepreneurship.
My favourite saying is 'Living My Best Life'; I love how relative this saying is and how it's unique to every person. Everyone's 'Best Life' is different; everyone has different goals, values, morals and individuality. What's important to some may not be to others. It doesn't make it right or wrong, just different.
I’d like to share with you:
My Goals: To be ‘my version’ of successful and to never stop aspiring, learning and improving.
My Values: I want to be the best person I can be for the people in my life.
My Morals: You never know what people are going through, so ‘be kind’.
My Individuality: I’m strong minded but wear my heart on my sleeve. I’m small-town with big city dreams. I have simplest style and rarely take the conventional route.
My 'Best Life': Explore and experience as much as I can. Everyday be grateful for what I have in this moment.
The vision of Z & Joxa Company is to embrace the amazing network of people out there and add style to everyone’s 'Best Life'. I want to make sure that there is something within this store for everyone, no matter your body type, age or style. Also, to debut all ‘you’ amazing and real people out there that have incredible goals, values, morals and individuality.
The dream for the Z & Joxa Company is to sell clothing local to the USA and Canada, but also from all over the world. I’ve been fortunate in my life to have travelled to 20 different countries (and counting). Traveling opens the eyes and mind to different culture, lifestyle and beauty; this has been a real inspiration in all aspects of my life. There are a lot of beautiful clothing and accessories that are uniquely handmade and have a story behind the products. Personally, this is what I’m most excited to sell, because I love the story; but I understand that what’s important to me, may not be important to others. This is why I also sell from the large-scale vendors as well, to be sure to ‘cast the net wide’. Whether small-scale or large, vendors are important to me. I want to provide as much information as I can about each vendor and to find out where and how the apparel is being made.
I have an amazing partner LeeAnn, who is my sister. She’s an advisor to the company and helps to define the Z & Joxa brand. Together we bounce ideas off each other and make sure we always have you (the customer) in mind for every decision we make.
My promise to you is to be transparent about products, shipping and returns and to evolve the brand and store based on your feedback.
I look forward to getting to know you. Reach-out anytime with any comments, concerns, questions or just to tell me your story.
